Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Any Tips for Bluegrass on the Archives?

So here I am for a few weeks in the Land of Fast Internet for my annual Christmas trip to the developed world. Woo hoo! I can download without it taking all day (or two)! Free shopping spree!

That makes it a good time to ask all you folks with great familiarity of the archives about Non-Dead Stuff that I could DL while I'm here. Particularly bluegrass shows.

Can anyone suggest/link to particular shows on the archives that are great representatives of bands you really like?

Thanks!

my Vintage Bluegrass and Newgrass tapes on The Archive

dead-head_Monte-nak_550.gif

AltheaRose, I taped many of the best bluegrass players around on my Nakamichi 550 cassette recorder in the mid-1970s. Then I taped several more of them a few years later. My tapes are unique. The Archive has been very generous to me and many others. The Archive grants us permission to publish and administrate the hosting of our live music tapes. We are permitted to add more multimedia-rich content, if we desired doing that. The Archive hosts all this content on their backed-upped PetaBox web servers, over high-speed internet connections.

So, I'm connecting elements from all across the internet, and threading this rich history into a tapestry as I see it — from the point of view of a Hippie-Cowboy-Trail Grub, GD lover, Taper, soundman, electronics tech, and Broadcast Engineer.

Archive Patrons, please consider making a cash donation to The Archive. Thanks from the Tapers!

Merry Xmas to the Rose family. Just how slow is that internet over in Kathmandu?

Also, could you be more specific in terms of what type of bluegrass you're seeking. Are you more into the straight bluegrass style that began with Bill Monroe, or do you go for the Newgrass stuff like Yonder Mountain String Band? Maybe both? Any preferences? If you name an artist or two you really enjoy, it would be easier to give some suggestions. For me, my favorite bluegrass-type artist is Bela Fleck, despite a lot of his stuff deviating quite a bit from the standard bluegrass style. He even plays Jazz, but his bluegrass playing is exciting and explosive, and you won't find a better banjo player, ever.

I'm keenest on straight bluegrass, but also like a lot of Yonder/Bela Fleck/newgrass stuff. Some of the more recent folks I like a lot are the Carolina Chocolate Drops, Abigail Washburn (speaking of Bela Fleck), and the Infamous Stringdusters ... but yeah, I can't check out new stuff easily!

"How slow"? Well, ordinary surfing is fine ... maybe kinda slow, but OK. However, to see a 5-minute YouTube clip (or stream a single 5-minute song on the IA), I usually have to buffer for at least 5 minutes. If there's a rec here that sounds interesting, I'll open a couple of windows, start buffering a series of things, then go away for a while; when it's ready, you can just keep ahead with the buffering as music plays. It's an acquired skill :-) And obviously I mainly listen to what I already have!

It's been here for a while and was uploaded as .shn's, so you can't stream it, but I guarantee that it's worth your time to download it.

Thanks for the link, had not listened to that show before! Really love the addition of the keyboardist.

Was planning on going to the New Year's shows in Denver at the end of the month, and was really looking forward to hearing Kyle Hollingsworth play with them, but due to work/employee situation I'm not going to make it...

Ouch - that is going to be a great show. Kyle is a very talented keyboardist and doesn't quite get the props he deserves.

Almost pulled the trigger on tix for RRE NYE Denver, but family constraints got in the way. My brother in law is deploying to Afghanistan in early January - his 7th deployment - and we are going to do the whole family together thing for the first time in about 8 years.

Hopefully things will work out for you and you can catch the show.

jglynn has a ton of recs. I'll throw in the Yonder Mountain String Band.

I haven't cruised through the bands on LMA in a while. My oldest is amazed they have Death Cab for Cutie, another gets his Jack Johnson and Momma gets DSO. The things that happen when you pay attention.

So, that must be fun living arraignment at the moment.

I also recommend Oakhurst very highly...although it's a shame that they don't have their mando and banjo players anymore. They used to be incredible, but now they're just a shadow of what they used to be. Here are two fabulous shows by them:

short and sweet, fast-paced, awesome show!

I hope your not on the East end. Thats some ugly stuff up
there. Im just wasting a few years down here in the
capitol city (just East). Of all the places I have lived
in the U.S., Columbus has to be one of the worst.
Everyone is so self-centered and rude. Maybe the crappy
weather has an effect on everyone. I donno. But
Im glad you are having safe and (hopefully) happy travels!
Enjoy those fast download speeds, and the company of
family of course :)
Oh, and a second the Greensky Bluegrass rec. That Mando
is the man.
Happy Halloween!!!

Well, there's a difference between the East Side in general and literally the East side of the actual city of Cleveland, which is essentially a deserted zone -- as all of "Cleveland proper" is, basically, with maybe a few scrappy, scruffy, and arty-and-student-y neighborhoods hanging on stubbornly to their hard-earned version of Cleveland-ness.

All in all, the East Side has the only old "hippie hood," plus I grew up on the East Side of the traditional Cleveland East-vs-West rivalry ... sorry, any Parma-ites out there stringin' Christmas lights on your pink flamingoes :-) So, gotta stick up for the good ol' East Side. It's not ALL like what you see in these videos. Though, well, most of it is ...

I'm speaking, of course, of these highly accurate documentary presentations:

I believe it is part of Cthullu's wrath for what the RnR HoF has done (or, rather "not done") to RUSH.

I did :-)

I was at that show, many many moons ago. It's one of a handful of candidate shows for my famous (to me) "Jerry smiled at me" moment. The shows then, at least in the Midwest, weren't at terribly big venues -- not tiny, but you could see the band and get good seats and often move up close -- and at one show before Phil and Jerry switched sides I was up front in the aisle, dancing and watching Jerry -- and then... hang on for the excitement folks ... he smiled and nodded! Right at me! In a highly Jerry-ish manner! So, there ya go. I'll take credit for being the inspiration for any fine musical moments you choose.

I'm at Drums right now and I have to say it is a beauuuutiful recording and a really good show: IKYR and He's Gone, especially. (Not a big Black Peter fan and definitely NOT a Good Lovin fan so I may have to hop off here.)

Never saw a show where I was close enough to tell if I was close enough for Jerry to give me a nod but I did stop to eat on the way back from Virginia earlier this week and a guy in the parking lot nodded at my stealie shirt and the manager said I looked like Phil, circa late '80s.

Travel safely back to the Kat.

Day-to-day life where I live? Hmmm. Well, this was taken walking distance from my house:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ei5ENajmDQI

I haven't actually lived in Cleveland since the late '80s. Just visiting for Xmas. But gosh, I wasn't offended at all ... just having fun with my knee-jerk East-vs-West Side thing. (It's a Cleveland thing. The West Side has the pink flamingos on the lawn. The East Side has the orchestra. Let's see if that will flush out any West Siders :-) )

Part of those videos I posted before was used by Michael Moore in Capitalism: A Love Story, and when it came on the screen, my husband and I just about fell out of our seats laughing ... definitely very true!

My take on the CNN episode ... The place they show looks to me like it's a pretty typical inner-city neighborhood. It's just one of those places that was blue-collar 50 years ago and has been poor and getting poorer ever since. Abandoned houses aren’t anything new there, either. The city per se is fairly small (the suburbs aren't incorporated in it) and has looked like a ghost town pretty much of all of my life.

However, I will say that if you've got a good job here, there are an awful lot of houses on the market in really nice neighborhoods. I suppose that's partly the current economy, but it's also just a reality of the Rust Belt. But hey ... at least it's not Detroit! :-)
